Just got back from the Candle light Vigil Prayer that was held underneath the Bell Tower tonight for everyone in Boston (as well as people that are being affected by violence and those who are experiences grief)
It was a very moving experience. While I was standing there praying with other, I looked around a mixture of feelings overtook me.
Feelings that were hard to describe: sadness, hopefulness, nostalgic, gratefulness, and pride.
Patrick, Evan, Noelle, Nicole, Caitlin, and Adrienne were the students leaders that put all of this together - I am so glad to have met and known these people; I am so proud to call them my friends.
Truly, beyond offering us a wonderful education, UP provides us with opportunity to meet great people, to create meaningful friendships. I may not remember everything I learned from Pchem or Cal II, but I will always remember my close friends and the beautiful memories that we have shared together.
(As you can tell, I’m getting quite sentimental these days with only two weeks left of school. Ok, I should stop now and study for my Biochem quiz tomorrow. Yikes!)
In all seriousness though,
I will miss my friends lots next year, I will miss Chapel Choir, Encounter Family, and Redefine Purple Pride groupies . I will miss this loving community of UP a lot.
